If you’re longing for your powder room to have the relaxing feel of a spa, you’re not alone. In fact, designers are increasingly focused on this space, elevating it with eye-catching trends such as brass fixtures and modern seating. While special features can really take your powder room up a notch, simply organizing the space can be the first (and most effective) step in creating the spa vibe you’re after.
Think about planning for the perfect bathroom that is inspired by a trip to your favorite spa (or even something far less extravagant) and you are often spending an enormous amount of time shopping for the right bathtub, tile and vanity. But in all this rush, another essential piece of bathroom décor seems to be neglected more often than not. The gorgeous and dashing mirror above the vanity is something that we all tend to easily forget about. Yet it is this that makes a huge difference to the ambiance of the bathroom and turns even the smallest powder room into a dashing delight.
Taking the living room into the bathroom might sound a bit crazy at first, but this definitely is the way forward for those planning for a brand new bathroom. The idea of ‘bathroom living’ is gaining momentum across the world, with designers and homeowners gravitating towards this innovative and luxurious concept. It is a trend that has also been personified in the many bathroom designs that we recently witnessed at Salone del Mobile 2017. Allowing you to add everything from bookshelves and comfy couches to a fireplace and TV to the bathroom, this fabulous upgrade will turn your existing bathroom into a soothing private sanctuary.
A bold splash of color in the powder room has become something of a trend in recent times, with homeowners willing to add audacious wallpaper and bright hues to give this small space a huge personality. Much like the other ‘hot trends’, this love for vivacious color might not last forever, but one color scheme that never goes out of trend is the classic duo of black and white. If you have ever stepped into a black and white bathroom, you will easily understand the timeless elegance of this combination and why it is perfect for your fashionable powder room as well.
Every bathroom vanity is only truly complete when you couple it with the perfect lighting fixtures and a cool mirror. Mirrors with LED strip lighting on the edge combine both these features in a dazzling, space-saving fashion. They are a great choice for those trying to create a refined, spa-styled minimal ambiance without having to compromise on practicality. In the small powder room, these illuminated mirrors remove the need for additional pendants of sconces next to the mirror and all you will ever need are neatly placed recessed lights.
For those who are still unsure about how to craft a dream powder room, one of the best ways to start is by looking for a style that is distinctive, striking, beautiful and completely different from the rest of the home. This turns the small powder room into a delightful escape that is unlike anything else in the house, and Victorian splendor perfectly fits this billing. The style not only brings pomp and the ‘wow factor’, but it also promises other great powder room essentials like walls that come alive with either textural beauty or splashes of color and ornate fittings that add to the oomph.
